    1. Author Brenda Peterson has led a charmed life among animals. But her book Build Me an Ark: A Life with Animals, makes clear that her life is charmed only because she has always gone out of her way to meet the animals more than halfway. The experiences she comes back to report–among dolphins, whales, dogs, cats, bears–startled and often moved me to tears. Who knew that a whale in deep mourning over the loss of her calf would take a woman’s arm in her mouth and gently “sound” the woman? [...]

    2. Memoir:You share deeply, and experience with the author, her love and kinship with animals and nature. On the day of the author's sister,Paula's first swim with "the girls", she was 9 months pregnant, and the "dolphins had forced all the other swimmers out of the lagoon to focusfull attention on Paula. "Practiced in echolocation, the dolphins listened to the fetal heartbeat and found it fascinating. But on this particular day.mething different, an agitation in the dolphins that prompted the rese [...]

    3. An informative, but sobering, read on the plight of animals and wilderness areas in the U.S. The author spent her formative years growing up in national forests where her park ranger father lived, and as a result developed a close relationship with the animals around her. This book contains both childhood remembrances as well as tales of her later work to preserve wild places and creatures. Highly recommended.

    4. Favorite quote: "Dolphins are obviously your aumakua, the animal that you belong to, whether you know it or not. Fortuately, you found out who you are and the animal you're meant to be with. Whom you must protect as a relative and who protects you."

    5. I liked this book. It was very well written with a lot of interesting animal stories. It was a little boring at times.
